    I've got a tripod. I've had one for years. I didn't know it made me a professional. Who do I speak to about my back pay?

    Sue the city for your back pay.

    It always amazes me how fast law enforcement hands out tickets for any little thing. Perhaps the ranger should have advised the guy since he never saw the photog before?... but that is just being courtious and will never happen in NYC.

    We are also experiancing a bike blitz of tickets. This city really bums me out, they always have their hands in your pocket, got dam blood suckers!

    I hope the guy they ticketed Sunday is reading this? I also posted it on a couple other photog sites so he'll fight it instead of paying the illegal fine.

    What if you have a tripod and no camera, are you still a professional?

    As an organization of 50K plus members couldn't a collective letter be sent to the NYC authorities complaining about this behaviour? To the media?

    Never mind. Ron Paul was not the ticketed party. A letter shouldn't be sent based on hearsay.

    Thanks for the support.

    I only saw n spoke to the photog when it happened, I wasn't the ticketed party. I am going to the beach today to hand them the information so I don't get a ticket in the future, I do use the park often and use my tripod regularly.

    Thinking about this again, the parks have their own rules separate from the city. And there are state parks and national parks. I was warned once under the Brooklyn Bridge while shooting a portrait, no tripod. One area down there has a different agency in control and they have their own rules.

    I got thrown off the beach today for taking pictures. A very cocky sargent ranger told me I have to leave the beach because I was taking pictures of the half naked ladies in section 1 to the right of the jetty. He says the girls called him n said I was hanging around for hours harrasing em and taking their pictures. I was actually taking pictures of the egret to the left of the jettty in the same area. But imagine getting thrown out for taking pictures?

    I refused to leave and insisted he arrest me for taking pictures, regardless of the subject matter, so they gave me a ticket for refusing to obey an order to leave, and escorted me to the exit. I was also called a pervert by the sargent ranger. I did offer my camera n film if they provide a search warrant but kept insisting they arrest me for taking pics if that was what they felt I was doing wrong... that just escalated their tempers so more sargents n cops n rangers showed up. By the time we finished there were 10 cops n 5 rangers. It's an abuse of power. I'm going to show up in court.

    I'd really like to sue the bastards but don't know any lawyers. I wonder if there are any involved in this sort of thing? I'd also like to send this in to the news.
